About Me

PS: "My Mail Box" is part of the address. Do not leave it out or the address will be incomplete.

🙋🏻‍♀️Hi! I am Wen.

I love both the visual and performing arts (music performance, illustration, photography), travelling, and learning about cultures and history.

I also enjoy reading and watching inspiring and thought-provoking books and (korean) dramas.

I can read, write and speak fluent English and Mandarin.

For sender's choice swaps, I will still try my best to send based on my recipient's preferences and wishes.

I usually post spoilers on my Instagram. They also act as proof that I have mailed out the letter/postcard. If you plan to flake or scam, please remember that karma exists.

I am currently collecting postcards, washi samples and uncommon used postage stamps.

Please use real postage stamps when you send me postcards/letters/items (no sticker label postage please if possible).

I enjoy looking at the stamps on the postcards and will never remove them. So please send me postcard written on and stamped without the envelope.

I am respecful, responsive and communicative. So I would really appreciate responsive and communicative swappers who are respectful as well.

  • Beautiful and/or matching stamps related to what is featured on the postcard

  • Stamps that are/feature:

-Vintage

-Cute illustrations

-Famous people/musicians

-Seasonal/holidays/festivals

About Rating

I feel strongly about rating. I always rate my partners in a timely manner with comment (a word of thanks at least) to show appreciation for their efforts. If you are a non-rater, please stay far away from me. I will not tolerate such unappreciativeness.

I also try not to give a 3 unless necessary.

  • Very slow or non-raters:
  1. CraftyShana76 (Even after 2 reminders to rate me from 1 Apr to 9 Apr 2020, she blatently ignored me while still joining other swaps. She only left me a rating after I posted on her page and blacklisted her on my page. She then happily deleted my post on her page.)

  • Supposed to rate a 3 or 1 but I did not do so:
  1. Babsiepoo did not meet the private swap requirements to send 1 written and stamped postcard based on profile preferences. I am absolutely not a fan of typical touristy postcards and have stated so on my profile. She sent 2 touristy Belgium postcards in an envelope. Now what should I do with them? 🤔
